Definition of methods, characteristics and aims in clinical trial, crystallization of scenarios for use in clinical setting

Dissemination and exploitation plan (interim)

The Dissemination, Communication, Exploitation committee (DCE) will submit details of the following: (a) prospective scientific publications (b) presentations and participation in international conferences in particular of the organizations listed above; IEEE, OSA, SPIE, IAC. Project members will share their results at entrepreneurial forums for communication and biomedical innovators within the European Union, at scientific meetings and with Program Steering Committee. (c) News segments for public communication and public or scientific awareness. (d) Press releases at key time points in the project development. (e) Development of website and social media (Facebook, Twitter) with CANCER SCAN logo, news on progress and information on findings and progress, including a data repository and a public-access domain. (f) Holding focus groups representing target markets at an early stage, to better understand and direct the specifications of the new device towards functional prototypes addressing specific markets (c) Connect to and develop a network of informed clinicians, medical device industry professionals, patient groups, to outline essential CANCER SCAN features that maximize the exploitation potential

Generation of 2 tunable entangled photons source

Developed 2 tunable entangled photons light source. Two tunable entangled photons light source will be integrated into the complete system at BGU. One system will be sent to the MUV hospital while the other will remain at BGU as the development prototype. Will foresee the implementation in the lab of an entangled photon source with a high degree of frequency tunability. A tunable high repetition rate laser will allow to generate entangled photons in the wavelength range 680-1064 nm. The source will be based on a PPKTP (periodically poled potassium titanyl phosphate) crystal embedded in a Sagnac interferometric setup. The crystal will be specifically designed to obtain a periodicity change in the poling period depending on the input direction. This will allow coarse tuning of the generated photons wavelength, while fine tuning will be performed by locally adjusting the crystal temperature. UNIROMA will take care and pay to transfer the two scanners to BGU

Mathematical model of normal breast

Mathematical description of breast structure and composition: description of optical imaging feature of the breast and impact of physiological changes (age, hormonal variation, blood pressure etc) on these features

Data Management Plan

A structured Data Management Plan will be prepared and it will include the best standards for the generated data and assess their suitability for sharing and reuse in accordance with official guidelines.

Public website animation

Design of website and provision of content with several sections dedicated to the scientific community, potential investors and general public, including public reports and links to publications and events.
